Re: How to Sync a directory on my PC with a directory on my

Windows Briefcases do actually sync both ways, so that if you put a new file in a folder in the briefcase, it will be transferred to the sync folder. I would recommend that you put the briefcase on your computer rather than on the tablet, though, as I'm not sure Android has native support for the Br...

Re: How to Sync a directory on my PC with a directory on my

If your PC is running Windows, you could try making a "Briefcase" rather than a folder on your computer (right click -> New... -> Briefcase). Then simply copy the folder you want synced from your tablet into the briefcase, and it will make a "sync copy". You would have to manually click "sync" to ac...

Re: what wallpapers r fits here?

With the stock Honeycomb home screen launcher, wallpapers scroll slightly side-to-side as you move between different home screens. I don't remember there being an option to turn that off, so regardless of wallpaper resolution, it will always ask you to crop it. In fact, if you want your wallpaper to...

Re: What do i get next ...

There is a whole thread dedicated to cases for the 80 G9 in the device specific subforum. If by capacitive pen you mean capacitive stylus, I haven't, and and I find that it works quite well, and helps keep fingerprints off the screen, though typing and multitouch gestures are easier with just finger...

Re: Movie Screen Ratio's on Gen 9

When connecting the 80 G9 to a tv via the hdmi port, the aspect ratio on the tv display depends on what appears the tablet is currently running. On the home screen, a 4:3 image will be shown, but this extends to widescreen if a widescreen video is being played, at least when using the (frankly excel...

Re: Car charger for 250gb's model

It's interesting to note that the device's description quotes the output as UK 220 volts, whereas in the pictures of the device, pic no 3 shows the sticker reading "Output 110 V". Hmm ... That particular device was really just the first battery inverter I found on Amazon, so I know nothing about it...

Re: Car charger for 250gb's model

Now, I don't have the 250GB version of the tablet, so I'm unfamiliar with exactly how its charger works, but if all else fails and no car charger is available, you could always use an in-car battery inverter ( something like this ), and plug the regular AC charger into that. It wouldn't be elegant, ...

Re: How do I media share from my Laptop to my archos 80 G9?

All you have to do is to share the folders on your computer (right click -> properties -> sharing), and you should be able to access them through the file manager or music/video players on your tablet. When I set it up, it didn't work at first, as Windows Live was interfering with the sharing someho...

Re: Firmware 3.2.79 released

How can it not be a bug if it worked in the #22 firmware but not since? My missus has used it since day one and her tablet hasn't self-destructed! It's not a bug because haptic feedback was disabled deliberately after Archos decided not to include vibration hardware in subsequent production runs. I...

Re: More MicroSD card issues... Class (speed) and file size

I have a Lexar class 10 32gb micro-sd card in my 80 g9, and it works fine, so it shouldn't be an issue regarding speed class. As to your other question, is it possible that the tablet has a problem with the codecs used in converting your DVDs to video files? You could try downloading a different vid...

Re: Archos G9 80 USB

In my experience, plugging in usb memory drive works perfectly well in either USB port. I can also use a USB mouse, but only when plugged into the micro-USB on the side of the tablet, not in the back. I haven't tried a keyboard or a 3G stick, so I don't know about that. You should be able to find th...

As should be visible from the second picture, the case fits the 80 G9 just about perfectly, contrary to what the Amazon product page suggests.

The case is soft, but padded, so it does provide protection, but not as much as a hard case. I'll post some pictures as soon as I can.

My guess is that it would fit, but since the product description doesn't state a size, that is purely a guess.
I would suggest, if you're in doubt, to contact Belton (for example via amazon's communication centre), and ask.
That's what I did in regards to the fabric case.

Re: wi- fi dongle for g9

The tablet should accept the SIM card without issue, but your plan may have restrictions on being used as a mobile broadband SIM, so you might want to check with your provider, O2 in your case.

If your tablet is plugged in to the charger when you try to turn it off, then it will turn back on again, as the tablet is unable to charge when off. If your tablet is unplugged and you still have this issue, then I don't know what could be causing it. Essentially, the difference between the power s...

Exactly. I bought the one from Amazon because, from the picture, it seemed to be the same case as the one on HongKongGeek, only without the need to ship it from China.
